“I stand for SOMETHING and I won’t be moved by NOTHING.”~Iyhia McMichael
This past month I could feel the power of payer, I could feel Gods presence in an overwhelmingly moving way. His presence has captivated my attention to all the intricate details of this life. Whether its the wind that kisses my cheek, or the echo of a laugh, or the beauty of a spring day. I can see and feel him everywhere I go and truly know that I AM NOT ALONE!
I have felt Gods love for me in an intimate way that I have longed and prayed for. I feel him as my companion, as he comforts my longing for near family and friends. He has brought comfort in my singleness in a way I have never experienced before. I celebrate my singleness! I am thankful for my singleness! I pray that he will extend it for as long as he sees fit, and during this time he will provide me with the assignments and responsibilities I need to do while in this single state.
I can feel him moving me to a new level, a new calling, a new responsibility and a new love for him. I can feel myself falling in love with my purpose. Tears string down my cheeks in celebration of reaching a new plateau in my relationship with God. I feel him walking side by side with me, celebrating life with me, and smiling with all that WE have overcome.
I am not sure what the finished product of my assignment will be, but I can feel him in the drivers seat of that journey. He’s showing me how to be comfortable in my own skin. I have the courage now to look at myself and say, “I’M BEAUTIFUL!” and know that I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I am who he created me to be and I make no apologies for it. I understand now that when people see me there is a light that shines bright, and I am encouraged to no longer dim my light in order to blend in to the crowd. I walk boldly knowing Gods presence is near and his reassurance is manifested in the details of my life.
I ask that you continue to pray for me, my assignment, strength in my purpose, and my ability to walk boldly in my faith. This poem is something that God put on my heart and I would like to share. I pray for all of you and thank you for praying for me.
“I stand for SOMETHING, I believe in SOMETHING, my feet are locked on SOMETHING, my eyes are fixed on SOMETHING, my heart is settled on SOMETHING, my mind is engulfed on SOMETHING, my life is centered around SOMETHING, and I won’t be moved by NOTHING.”~Iyhia McMichael
